Week #1 Wardrobe - Before and After

 Well, I feel like I made some good progress this week!  I'm pleased.

Here is my side of the closet - before.

 This is a common sight in our bedroom - clothes waiting to be put away.  Josh says, "This chair is nice, if we can use it to sit."  :)

 My closet and pajama drawer before.

 My pajama drawer has been way too full - and then I just put stuff on my dresser because I'm out of room!  I was able to donate 1/2 of it!

I dumped all of my drawers and wiped them out.  Tackling my pajama drawer was quite a task.  I sorted it all into piles:  shorts, pants, t-shirt, tank tops, sets.  I kept several of each.  I got rid of 1/2 of my "pajama" stuff.

I went through my socks and got rid of random items and tossed a lot of underwear and lingerie.

In my closet:  I got rid of everything I didn't wear this winter.  I wiped the closet walls and shelving.  I sorted everything by color (which I already did), and turned all of my hangers backwards.  That way, at the end of each season, if it hasn't been worn (if the hanger is still backwards) - it's gone.

I got rid of a few sweaters on the shelves and refolded everything nicely.

I donated business suits and prom dresses. By the time I am interviewing, I need to buy a new suit!

I have 2 garbage bags full of clothes to donate.  I'm not even trying to sell it.  It's gone.

Josh never got to his stuff!  Maybe Spring Break!

I was also able to tackle my jewelry and accessories.  One of my greatest friends game me an awesome Jewelry Organizer that is hanging in my closet!


The chair is currently cleaned off and available for sitting.  We'll see how long that lasts!  Josh better hurry home and have a seat.  ;)
All of my pajamas fit in their drawer now!


  1. Here are my pictures:
    I ended up doing CJ's side myself ;).

  2. Lookin' good, Myah! I do this every season with all of our closets... give clothes we have not worn away to Goodwill... reorganize the closets. It makes me feel like a new woman! Keep up the good work!


  3. Hi Myah! You'd be proud, my organized friend.... I delivered three bags to Goodwill last night! While I didn't totally overhaul my closet yet, I did make some progress! YIPPE! ;)
